今月は「ドラマで英語を学ぼう」の最新作として、広島大学学生のMikael Kai Nomuraさんの書き下ろしによるオリジナルドラマ"Detective Adventures!"をお届けします。
探偵(detective)ものといえば、『シャーロック・ホームズ』や『名探偵コナン』が人気がありますね。
今回のドラマに登場するのは、彼らのように鮮やかに事件を解決する名探偵でしょうか、それともその逆の「迷」探偵の方でしょうか…。

Detective Adventures!
W1: Good morning, detective! My name’s Shirley, and I’ll be your new assistant.
M: Um… Shirley… I’m sorry to tell you, but you’ll have to give up smoking if you want to work with me.
W1: Oh… How did you know I smoke? Hmm… I guess you’re trying to be like Sherlock Holmes, deducting the possible realities of people by just observing them!
M: And smelling them!
W1: Oops, I should have gargled after that cigarette! … OK, guess what I had for lunch, then!
M: Well… The ends of your sleeves are a little bit folded. And you have catsup stains on your sleeves as well. I’ll guess you had a McDonald’s burger and fries! The catsup that comes with the fries explains the red stain!
W1: Oh.. yes! You’re right, detective!
M: You even have a knife in your left hand… Do you have a collection of knives?
W1: Wow, I DO have my own collection!
M: Haha! I’m really the greatest detective, hey?!
W1: AND, the easiest one to kill!
M: No! No! Don’t shoot me!
(gun shot!) (Sound of body falling to the floor)
(changed voice of woman)
Different Woman: Good morning, detective! Wa-… At last I caught her!
M: Ah! That was a close call! You saved me!
W: Sorry for the trouble, detective. I was trying to catch the serial killer who kills a lot of detectives. I sure am relieved that I got here BEFORE she was able to kill you.
M: Oh! Do you mean she just killed some other detective?
W: Yes! And you were her next target!
M: So, the red stain on the sleeves…
W: Yes, It was actually blood!
M: Well, thank God you came. Um… who are you, anyway?
W: Sorry for being late! I’m Shirley—the REAL Shirley! and I’LL be your new assistant.
M: Oh, a GOOD Shirley. Great!
(Sound break, a couple of days later)
W: Detective, we just received a new case!
M: OK. Tell me about it.
W: It’s about a missing person!
M: A missing person! Interesting! This’ll be my first time working on a missing-person case.
W: OK. According to the report, the missing man is about 6 feet tall.
M: So, we’re looking for a guy who’s about the same height as me?
W: Yeah. He was last seen 6 months ago in his own house.
M: Hmm… That means… he must have at least contacted his own family, right?
W: I guess so. The sender was close-lipped about the missing person’s personal details, so I don’t have much information. I’ll have to try to reach the contact person and ask for more personal details. So, do we accept this case?
M: Of course, we’ll accept the case! I’ll use my great detective skills to find that person as soon as possible!
W: Great! Right away I’ll send an email to the person who sent in this case.
M: OK. Ask for the missing person’s name, and we’ll need a picture as well.
W: OK. There! Email sent!
(Sound break, for the passing of about 10 min)
W: Oh, wow. A reply came back already. That took only 10 minutes.
M: OK. We need to know the name, first.
W: For the name… Oh! Detective… the missing person has the same name as you!
M: What? Hmm… that’s REALLY interesting. Can we look at the picture? Oh! It looks like me!
W: Detective! It IS literally you! How many days have you been away from home?
M: Um… Just for 6 months!
W: Oh detective… the sender must be your wife!
(Sound break, a few days later.)
W: Good morning, detective.
M: Hi Shirley. What’s up today?
W: OK. Today we’re going to investigate a crime scene!
M: Oh! I’m so excited!
W: But you’re a detective! You do this all the time, right?
M: This is actually my FIRST time going to a crime scene!
W: What?! But you’re a detective! Why?
M: I never worked on a case, not until I got YOU as my assistant.
W: Wow. But you DO know how to work like a detective, right?
M: I think so! I’ve watched a lot of detective Conan anime, so I’m fine!
W: Um… OK… Anyway, let’s go to the crime scene!
(door closes, sound of a police car siren)
W: Well, finally we’re at the crime scene. Oh! There’s the body!
M: I see… Let me examine it for a while.
(few seconds of silence)
M: Hmm. I think the person’s been dead for less than 24 hours. Hmm… the floor and the body are wet. What might be the reason?
W: Uhm, detective, I think…
M: Shh! I’m concentrating right now. Let the detective do his job!
W: But… detective, the…
M: Aha! I got it! Now it all makes sense! The killer used a block of ice to kill the victim! THAT would explain why the floor and the body are wet! Well, I’m a genius, right?
W: But detective… WE are a little bit wet, as well.
M: Oh no! Is the killer going to kill us too?
W: No! The floor, the body, and WE are all wet… because IT’S STARTED TO RAIN!
M: THAT makes total sense too! Shirley, you can be a detective as well, like me!
W: Oh detective…
